The recently rebuilt play area off Chantry Road in Thornbury has now reopened following its refurbishment. As previously communicated, there was some delay with the reopening after a small amount of low-grade asbestos had been uncovered from underground.
The new play area includes trampolines, toddler swings, rope seat swing, climbing unit with slide, hip hop, fully accessible roundabout, springers and shuttle run balance beams. The Mayor of Thornbury, Councillor Chris Davies, said “we are very happy that the play area has reopened and hope that families have hours of fun using the lovely new equipment”.
The refurbishment of the play area is part of Thornbury Town Council’s rolling replacement programme of all play areas for which they are responsible. The next play area due for refurbishment is the Eastland Avenue play area. Members of the public have already provided helpful feedback to the Town Council on the type of equipment that they would like to see in the play area, and full consultation will follow in due course.
